THE NMDA RECEPTOR PLAYS A CRITICAL ROLE IN

COGNITIVE

AND

PSYCHOLOGICAL FUNCTIONS

NMDA Receptor Actions are Essential to Memory, Learning, Personality and Higher Cognitive Function

 

Receptor actions are complex and essential to memory, personality and higher cognitive function.

The NMDA Receptor is involved in countless functions:

NMDA is a Receptor in the Glutamate Neurotransmitter System (GNS)

HOW DOES IT WORK?

The NMDA (N-Methyl D-Aspartate) Receptor

  • NMDA-R is co-activated by Glutamate and Glycine

  • Glycine acts as a co-factor to safely activate the receptor

  • Glutamate activity in excess can produce excitotoxicity causing damage and death to neurons

NMDA-Rs have a role to play in diverse and complex processes of mind and brain including:

  • Memory Formation and Long Term Potentiation (LTP)

  • Excitotoxicity and Stroke Outcome

  • Ego and Frontal Lobe Function

  • Pain and Opiate Tolerance

  • Alcoholism and Drug Abuse

  • Schizophrenia and Depression

  • Anhedonia

  • Age Related Memory Decline

  • Dementia and Alzheimers

  • ADHD

  • Neuroprotection

(NMDA-R) ABNORMALITIES CONTRIBUTE TO COGNITIVE AND PSYCHOLOGICAL DEFICITS THAT ARE CHALLENGING TO TREAT.
(NMDA-R) therapies are generally lacking.


PROFRONTAL is the Best Natural Option to Support (Efficient) NMDA-R Function.

LONG TERM POTENTIATION (LTP)
